Following the tremendous success of the Sandlot program last year, Newton South East Little League is pleased to announce registration for the Summer 2013 Sandlot Program for eligible 9-12 year olds.
Instead of forming teams with set rosters and coaching staffs. NSELL conducts “Sandlot Baseball Nights” on two weeknights per week from the last week of June through the middle of August. The league provides shirts, hats, umpires, coaches and other game-related logistics. The objective is to give everyone a chance to have fun playing competitive baseball in a well organized environment.
The cost is $75 and limited to 75 participants on a first come, first serve basis. Please visit the NSELL website for more details and to register.

Walnut Hill School for the Arts and the New Art Center in Newton—two of the region’s most respected arts institutions—have created a new Summer Visual Art Program for artists in grades 7–12 who are interested in refining their skills in visual art, while exploring new disciplines and techniques.
The three-week program, July 20 – August 16, allows students to experience Ceramics, 2-D Mixed Media or 3-D Mixed Media, Drawing and Painting, Visual Art Career Exploration, and Portfolio Preparation. Each week, students will select one class for the entire morning and two different classes for the afternoon.
The program takes place on Walnut Hill’s scenic 30-acre campus in Natick, utilizing the School’s wide range of visual art studios. Classes are taught by a diverse group of talented faculty from both organizations. Lunch is provided each day, and there will be opportunities for a daily swim in Walnut Hill’s outdoor pool (weather permitting). At the close of the three weeks, students will exhibit their artwork in a formal gallery exhibition and reception for family and friends.
More information, including registration, is on the Walnut Hill website.
